Abstract

A workshop, IEEE 1588 - Standard for a Precision Clock Synchronization Protocol for Networked Measurement and Control Systems was held at NIST. It is co-sponsored by NIST and the Instrumentation and Measurement Society of IEEE. The workshop participants represented different sectors of industry ranging from networked instrumentation and measurement, to utility power generation and distribution, to aerospace and avionics, to semiconductor production equipment manufacturing, to telecommunication. Twelve presentations on implementations based on the IEEE 1588 standard or technologies addressing time synchronization issues were presented in three sessions. Following that, a demonstration session was held featuring implementations based on IEEE 1588 from six companies. The demonstrations ranged from networked time synchronization of sensor data acquisition, to motion control, to software tools for time synchronization diagnostics. The final session was an open forum discussion. The proceedings of the workshop will be put in the IEEE 1588 website at http://ieee1588.nist.gov
